The Government of India
Has a vision of developing ‘one hundred Smart Cities’,
As satellite towns of larger cities,
And by modernizing the existing mid-sized cities.
The government aspires
To manage the cities better
In view of increasing pressure on urban infrastructure
Due to fast pace of migration
From rural areas to the urban establishments.
However, one of the enablers
For this ‘smart’ proposition
Appears to be 3D cadastres.
Is India cadastre-ready?
